The built-in USB plug doesn't charge my phone well enough. I use my sole cig lighter/outlet to power my dash-cam. Has anyone swapped-out the USB plug for a second cig lighter/outlet? How to access underneath?

It's pretty easy to do. This has been documented several times - google is your friend in the top right of this window.

Yes they are but here is another one.

All you have to do is cut off the USB receptical and replace it with a cigaret receptical. If you want it hot all the time just run a new + wire from either the battery or fuse box by the drivers side door (fused of course).

Another, maybe easier option would be a good multi-port charger. I use this one:

I get USB-C quick charging for my Nexus 6P and another port that can charge almost anything else at full speed, too.

I'd still be interested in your write up if you swap out the stock USB port, as it is useless to me, too!

I have something similar to that, but nowhere to plug it in. That's why I made this post...need a second Cig Lighter outlet to plug in my two-port, high-amp USB charger.

Just a note....

If you want to remove the panel that these are mounted on for easier access, there is a screw that must be removed. It is under the rubber cup that is not-quite-a-cup-holder!

Otherwise, you'll be yanking on the panel wondering why it won't come loose....AMHIK
